Have a couple of freinds I ride with maybe once a month. Now that I think of it, I haven't been on a big group ride before. That might be fun a couple of times a year but riding solo lets me push myself and get a good workout in too.

Yes sir, the solitude of riding alone is a wonderful thing, though I usually always ride with my son and then my wife from time to time, but riding solo is where it is at for me. Don't get me wrong, I do ride with trail buddies (mostly singletracks members or just locals) as well, especially when having a FR or urban/street session, but I prefer the solo riding better.
I have a few trails on my "wish list" that I would like to ride this spring/summer that would require some travel. For this I think a small group would be great. I have been thinking about trying to get some singletracks.com members to meet up for a ride.
Have any of you ever done that?

Cheesy sentiments aside, I really prefer to ride with others - those rides seem to be the most fun. On average I'd say I ride with 3-4 guys but during my 29 day challenge I ended up riding alone a good bit just because I had to ride at odd times of the day/week.
